About Tyas Cottage, luxury self catering for 6 in Yorkshire

Tyas Cottage, a combined cottage and barn, is one of 3 properties within an isolated hamlet in Merrydale, near Slaithwaite and Marsden. The other two houses are in permanent occupation. It was here. in the early sixteen hundreds, that the first water powered mill in the Colne Valley was built.

As you can see on the aerial photograph. the hamlet is surrounded by free to roam woodland and fields. Deer live in the woods, and are frequently seen in the early mornings. Our nearest village, Slaithwaite is about a twenty minute walk away.

Secluded, within Merrydale, a sheltered valley, Tyas Cottage is adjacent to an ancient, cobbled pack horse road. The abundant natural birdlife of this local beauty spot includes kingfishers, herons and sparrow hawks.

In addition to the private patio there is a large shared, award winning garden that includes a mill pond, stream and waterfall.

The quality of the furnishings, mainly antiques, can be appreciated from the photos, but special mention must be made of the Georgian mahogany 4 poster bed with its wooden carved ceiling.

Both the heron and a kingfisher are seen almost every day

As an enthusiastic bread maker, it would be a great pleasure to give interested guests some of my sourdough starter (given to me by our local Handmade Bakery - it comes from Finland and has been kept going since 1970!).
